London - Becca Tobin's co-star thinks she will be “all right” following her boyfriend's sudden death.

Mark Salling is praying for the 'Glee' actress, who is said to be “baffled” after her boyfriend Matt Bendik was found dead in his hotel room at Philadelphia's Hotel Monaco on Thursday, but says she is a “strong girl.”

The 31-year-old actor told “Losing someone that close - I've honestly never been through anything like that, so the most someone like myself can do is offer my condolences. That's a tough one.”

Matt's cause of death is currently unknown, but an incident report taken by a detective at the scene stated no drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol, medication or weapons were located in his hotel room, and his body did not appear to have suffered any physical harm.

The nightclub promoter's death happened just before the first anniversary of 'Glee' star Cory Monteith's death from a heroin and

alcohol overdose in Vancouver, Canada today (13.07.14), and Mark admits those wounds are “still fresh.”

Asked what message he would like to send to Becca, he said: “Our prayers are with you and with what we went through a year ago with Cory - it's still fresh wounds, and I can't help but associate that feeling with what we went through. But she's such a strong girl, so she'll be all right.” - BANG Showbiz
